Wigger is a 1974 novel written by William Goldman about a young girl who loses her blanket.

Wigger was named for a blanket that belonged to Goldman's daughter Susanna.[1] Goldman later said the novel was one of his favourites and writing it was a "wonderful experience... compared to what it's like ordinarily."[2]

The book was voted a Book of the Year by the Child Study Association. However Goldman has not written another children's book.[3]
